Ms. West's May Newsletter

Hello All!

This school year has gone incredibly fast! I cannot believe we have less than two months left of school. However, in this last month and a half, we sure do have a lot of "stuff" to fit in!

Interim reports will be going home on Thursday, May 5th. We will not have school on Friday, May 6th, so interim reports will be due back signed on Tuesday, May 10th.

EOG's are also quickly approaching. Your child should have brought home a letter on Friday about the upcoming EOG's. The Science EOG will be on Thursday, May 26th. The ELA EOG will be on Wednesday, May 1st. The Math EOG will be on Thursday, June 2nd.

In preparation for EOG's, we have many fun activities planned. Please let me know if any of you would like any extra resources for your child to practice at home. We have introduced quite a few new "tech tools" that are going to play a big role in helping us prepare.

I am truly cherishing every moment spent with your children in these last weeks. I am so thankful that I have gotten the chance to have them in class! They are all truly wonderful, remarkable children. I also want to quickly thank all the parents who helped in surprising me on Friday with the celebration for Beginning Teacher of the Year. I am so honored to have received that award!

I hope every has a marvelous May!

Science EOQ

There will be a 4th quarter science EOQ on Wednesday, May 4th. It will be on Forces and Motions and Heat Transfer which is what we have spent this quarter covering.
